plan: staff of herding

Bug Report
I have already learned this plan but i forgot. Now, i picked it up accidentally and read it saying (already know) having trouble trying to drop it on floor. Now its in my inventory and its just taking up space. HELP!!! Can't get rid of it.
I am having the same issue.
yup same here I was doing a mfn run in infernal and pick it up after Izual now I can't drop it!
We changed this in the 1.0.3 patch because a lot of players were accidentally dropping these items. Now that these items are no longer white items and have specific colors, the developers want to revisit this.

The current workaround is to put the item in your stash, make a new character, have the new character get the item from your stash, and then delete the item. That will at least let you get rid of the extra items you have.
I have the same problem for the "Plan: Staff of Herding" text.

It's space can't be reclaimed because the tome must be carried or placed in stash.

Any attempt to drop it displays the error message: "That item is not allowed there."
Create a new char, place unwanted (undroppable) items in its inventory and delete the character.
Problem solved
Same problem here. Making a new character is NOT an option nor a "work around" and it is not even up to being labeled "Lame".

We've already got a fix planned, though, that will allow you to drop the item on the ground or "sell" it for 0 gold to a vendor.

This will probably require a client patch, so even if they've already fixed it on their end, it won't be fixed for the players until the next patch.
All you have to do is put it in your stash, make a new guy, put plan on new guy, and delete new guy. Plan no longer on your account....
I have the same problem (accidentally bought a second upgrade plan, for staff of herding nightmare, I hope that issue will also be fixed, so it will give a message to prevent purchase, as I am also frustrated to have wasted 20,000). Cannot drop, cannot vendor, cannot make Haedrig learn it as he knows the plan already. I cannot just make a new character and then delete character as I have used all my character slots already.

Support: Any chance of knowing when the fix/patch will be applied/updated?

Reporting the same issue.
I solved with the abovementioned workaround.
This has been fixed on the PTR, and thus should be fixed in 1.0.7.
